Day 1266 -- Jogger's Progress

Time54 days, 17 hrs, 26 min
11 days, 22 hrs, 26 mins

Just before Christmas, I got sick. I have had horrible congestion in my lungs, which makes it really hard to run. Some illnesses I can run through, but not this one. So I ended up taking a whole week off. I finally got in one last run for the year, yesterday. Naturally, it wasn't an easy run. I still have some congestion, so I had to alternate running and walking.

The result was that December was another off month. For the second month in a row, I ran only 14 days, and this time, I didn't even make 74 miles.

For the year, I wasn't too bad. I had more miles than 2006 and 2007, although fewer total days. In fact, it was the lowest number of days in the history of JogAmericaBlog.

I have signed up for the Pikermi in Eau Claire on May 1. So Monday, I begin a 17 week training program. That should get me back on track.
